“All I wanted to do was go shopping today…”
~Danielle from In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb
It couldn’t be more appropriate than this March the First to highlight Danielle’s lament in the video “In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb”. As we were hit with another blast of snow showers this afternoon, I am hoping that the wintery start to the month will yield to a more gentle season, conducive for outdoor productions.
What I like about this line is the way Danielle delivers it with a tremble in her voice. Truly her character was nervous throughout the walk home, with the very real possibility she would be seen by people and cars passing by in broad daylight. The words capture the essence of her misfortune and the emotion of Danielle’s naked embarrassment.
